You Can’t Pick Your Friends OS

The latest podcast, “You can pick your friends, you can pick your OS, but you can’t pick your friends OS”, is up. While we are busy dodging lawsuits for defamation from our comments, you should go download and listen in.

The show notes:

  • Jamie confesses his lack of authority on the topics we discuss (and disdain of Deski)
  • Reportapalooza in flight, User Conference on the Horizon, and new BOBJ deployment options on deck
  • The DSLayer Conference Party is on Greg
  • BOBJ on Windows
  • A good point, InfoView on Tomcat + Linux really does rock
  • We ask, who is the best admin, Windows vs. *nix?
  • Windows needs a lot of lot of reboots
  • Do memory limits hurt Windows?
  • What is more cost effective?
  • We love you, admins
  • Future cool server stuff in the pipeline coming from SAP

An update from Greg…the proof is in the pudding…a BOBJ server that has been up for 3.5 years:
